The magic of Hollywood is one the Gold Coast with Movie World! This fun-filled day out lets you experience all the glitz and glamour of the Tinseltown movie scene all in the one place!

The magic of the oceans can be experienced at Sea World, where you can meet amazing creatures such as sharks, penguins, polar bears and other marine life in environments that reflect their own habitats!

At Sea World you can spend the day enjoying numerous shows, from stunt shows to water shows and of course animal shows! Marvel at the playful seals and dolphins as you realise how intelligent these creatures actually are.

However, Sea World isn't just animals though! If you love thrills then there are a-plenty, because Sea World is home to some pretty impressive roller coasts that will surely challenge! Afterwards, you can make a splash at Castaway Bay, or sit back and enjoy SpongeBob in 3D.

Offering all-round fun, Sea World is a family favourite just waiting for you!

Rain or shine, winter or summer, Wet 'N' Wild Gold Coast is an AMAZING day out for the family! After all, who doesn't love to make a SPLASH!?

At Wet 'N' Wild it's water slides galore - for the brave and those wanting something a little more gentle. There are pools for the little ones, and even a whirlpool where you'll want to keep going back again and again!

Did we mention there is also a giant wave pool too!?

This Gold Coast attraction is one of the most popular water parks in the entire country, and when you visit you'll soon see why. Is winter putting you off? Don't let it! Wet 'N' Wild heats all the pools in those cooler months so you can just keep enjoying the water fun!

If you want a bit more space on this SPLASH-tastic day out, why not book a Chill Cabana? You can enjoy your own area as a family, before heading back out to really make sure you've enjoyed the wet AND the wild!
